You should see if: your throat is swollen for some reason, as tonsils or the posterior wall of the throat itself can be swollen due to allergies or anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction). You may also have a polyp or infection of your throat such as thrush. You should see a healthcare provider as soon as possible if this effect does not go away within the next 3 days.
